It is only fitting that I should write my post in pastel colors as I rarely do pastel cards.  This is one of my RARE ones you are about to see.

It is for STAMPING WITH THE DRAGON.  They do NOT have a challenge this week, but their TWO WEEK CHALLENGE is still open, so please pop over.  This card is for enjoyment only - theirs and mine, and I must say, I LOVED doing this card.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Of course it is using an image from the DRAGON'S LAIR DESIGNS, SWTD store,  so pop on over there and see what might interest you.  You never know where it might take you...I didn't!

Lovingly Made with...
The image (although I'm contemplating not telling so you will be inclined to search at The Dragon's Lair Designs to find this one (lol) is Penny with Butterflies!  Isn't she the cutest!!!!  Beth and Janette picked her out for me.  They did a great thing because they challenged me to go out of my comfort zone...and I am SO happy with the result!

The Sentiment is also from DLD.  The Paper is from Stampin' Up! (one of my absolute Favourite papers from SU.) I cut out all the flowers from the paper, which is in the background of the card and put some of the flowers in the foreground. I then cut the layers of the flowers and put them on thick adhesive, attached to the foreground and then a pearl.  

On the background paper, I used a scrapping knife and cut around the flowers to make them stand up (if you double click you will see this.)  The satin ribbon is also Stampin' Up! as are the white flower and pearls.  The bow is from my dog's straw and the pink flower is from the $ store.
